Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including aspartate carbamoyltransferase activity; carbamoyl-phosphate synthase (glutamine-hydrolyzing) activity; and ribonucleotide binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including alpha-amino acid metabolic process; protein phosphorylation; and pyrimidine-containing compound biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including neuronal cell body; nuclear lumen; and terminal bouton. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; branchial arch; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 50. Orthologous to human CAD (carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase).
